Caffeine doesn't even seem to effect me anymore. *sigh* As in staying awake. Other stuff still happen.

Also, why the heck isn't it possible to buy trackballs anymore? Sure, they're available, but not at a reasonable price/in a wide variety of models. My old one broke a couple of years ago and I miss it.

Those things are so infuriating to use (at least for me they are) I try and select something, then I breathe, and the goddamn mouse moves.
If I ever need a surge of testosterone, and am in a quick need of thinking irrationally, I'll use one of those fuckers.

Trackballs are weird. Kinda hard to use.

I guess trackballs seem hard to use over mice, but they have some advantages, like how they aren't surface dependent (some laser mice too) and they don't cause mouse arms. Also, the ball makes a neat toy if not disposed of. It's just like a cue ball.

My freind has a trackball, and he puts it in this thing that looks like a mouse. So I spend a few fruitless moments moving the thing around, out of habit, and feel like a moron.

Meh, feeling crappy. Tired and not doing the dishes like I'm supposed to and forgot soap in the washing machine and generally avoiding social contact today...

^ awww. you sound really drained. Go jog and then sleep. I think by then you will feel more energetic.

I had two dreams consecutively. I guess its my body telling me that its damn stressed. Bloody mid-sems that I am sure that I would get 0 for if I don't buck up now and study.

Because there's more pressure to say something with at least a hint of substance here. Count to a million requires only that you know how to count. Which is why I avoid that potentially embarrassing thread.

Looking forward to school tomorrow. Or not. Mixed feelings. I mean, it's school = boring, but I have a fun line/subject/etc, so it's fun, and we're going to work in classes/groups = less people = maybe I can get to know somebody. Anywhoes, good night, y'all~ I love you. <3

In completely unrelated news, many commercials become extremely surreal when played out of context or without sound, or with just the sound and not looking at the TV.
